Design Wall Monday

This is the start of a quilt for my Uncle's 70th birthday. He really likes western theme, so I thought the cowboy boots would be perfect. All the strip sets sewn together and now to finishing cutting them out. I cut two sets out so I could see how they were going to look.

Design Wall Monday ( on Wednesday)

I am finally able to download pictures from my new camera to my computer so I can post on design wall Monday. I had some thing on my wall that is now finished so I decided to post it late. Since I am on the stash buster's diet, I pulled from my stash to make a donation top. I was able to make two tops out of the fabric, plus a pillow case.

The start of the top. All the fabric. The fabric in the back of the picture is for the backing.
Top one on my design wall

The two tops completed.

I used three yards to make a "Designer" Grocery Bag. It is lined with fusible fleece interfacing that came from my stash so I'm counting it. If I could figure out my new camera I'd take a picture and post it. Figured out the camera!

New Year New Goals

As this is a new year, I am making my new sewing goals. I have already made a list of UFO's to finish in 2010. I have even worked on it. Another goal is to make more donation tops than last year. Plus I am going to post on Judy Laquidara Stash Report 2010. So far nothing to report but that's ok.

I'm sure most of you have read about the 1 million pillowcases project with All People Quilt--if not please read about it on the Heartstrings Quilt Project page. Mary has a great tutorial. I would like to make some every month. What a great way to use up some stash for a good project.

I did get a ufo table runner top done.
